Something totally bizarre is going on here!

totally bizarre The Duvall Police told me they can't provide protection for pedestrians using the crosswalk across Main Street (several near hits there). Shortly afterwords, they announce they will have a "marine patrol" (using a borrowed boat) going up and down the river...!
